School Bus Danger Zone!

​More children are killed outside of a school bus than they are as bus occupants. Motorists must anticipate children in a school bus “danger zone” — the area around a bus where most injuries and deaths occur. bus1.JPG

In the past five years (2011 - 2015), there were 3,396 school bus crashes in Minnesota, resulting in 13 deaths.

  • Motorists must stop at least 20 feet from a school bus that is displaying red flashing lights and/or its stop arm is extended when approaching from the rear and from the opposite direction on undivided roads.
